Stash-Buster Sweater

 I have just found this in my archives, looks like I have been trying to stash-bust for a while because this was posted in June 2011.



It was lovely to knit and of course so easy, great for using up those little bits of yarn.  You can find the pattern here and have fun with lots of different colour combinations.

I used Double knit wool and 4 mm knitting needles
This one is to fit a 7 year old 
Sorry I didn't weigh it at the time so I'm not sure how much yarn it took.

It seems ages since I did any knitting and I feel a knitting urge coming on!

My stash-buster totals for February - 1276 grams which includes 4 strips from Astri's Rockman Cal which I am hoping to finish in March yey!




Meanwhile these are the next victims to be busted haha





See you Thurday !

  1. Thanks for the link to the pattern Linda. The more stash-busting friendly patterns we can find the better!
    I've posted my final stashbusting projects for February on my blog, and they weighed a paltry 206 grams (but I've cheated and held a biggie back for March!!) so I haven't been idle, honest!!

  2. Love the stripes Linda and what a great total for the month!
    Thanks for totalling mine... I had a big (for me!!) weight up my sleeve that I have now posted - which brings me up to a humungous 186g!!. I think I'm in the Championship rather than the Premier League!

    1. Well you won't see the strips Astri because as soon as they are done they get added to the big blanket, shouldn't be long now just the finishing bit to do. :)

  9. This is such a great stash-buster idea--a sweater with stripes. I am currently working on some baby cardigans (but not stash...maybe I will try it later)

    1. Thank you Ana, I always think sweaters are easier than cardigans no buttons to sew on the front :)
